Sun, 7 May 2017, 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM PDT
Develop and use your expert intuition
About the workshop
As an entrepreneur or project developer, it is often difficult to estimate the risk of the decisions we make. Sometimes all the indicators seem aligned but our inner voice says "DON’T DO IT!”. So where do I go?
In this workshop devoted to risk management in entrepreneurship, we will give you the secrets to develop your intuition. We will teach you how to use analytical reasoning for a tasty recipe of success!
This course is organized to help you measure the risk in every important decision you make for the development of your project and / or company. In order to avoid the pitfalls and biases associated with tough decisions, learn from the practical cases we offer in this hands-on workshop.
At the end of this practical workshop, you will be able to:
- Distinguish when to use intuition vs analytical reasoning
- Recognize and avoid the classic errors linked to common entrepreneurial decisions
- Understand in which circumstances your intuition can optimize your decisions
- Trigger your entrepreneurial epiphanies
How to get the most out of this workshop
- Prepare a list of your current decisions and their dilemmas
